With just a little more than five months before the 2007 season opener at Penn State, coach Mario Cristobal will get his first chance this spring to see what kind of players were left over by former FIU coach Don Strock.
It should be an interesting two and a half weeks of spring practice as there will be plenty of competition for starting jobs before Cristobal's heralded first recruiting class steps foot on FIU in August.
From what I understand starting jobs will be up for grabs at almost all positions. Just because a player may be an upperclassman won't secure a starting job. Remember this is a new coaching staff and they are going to go with who they feel will give them the best chance to win.
I want to thank coach Cristobal for not making the first spring practice at dawn like the previous five spring openers.
3:30 in the afternoon sounds a lot better than 6 a.m.
